of surgery (before age 1 year) and the benefits of early surgical intervention. The patient and his family should be informed about the risks of infertility and malignancy. Self-examination after the onset of puberty should be discussed as very important for the early diagnosis and successful treatment of testicular cancer. Previous References Braga LH, Lorenzo AJ.

The most common tumor in an undescended testis is a , whereas the most common tumor after successful orchiopexy is . Approximately 20% of these tumors occur in a contralateral descended testis. Carcinoma in situ occurs in approximately 0.4% of patients undergoing orchiopexy. Orchiopexy is not protective against subsequent testis cancer but does place the testis in a favorable position for routine self-examination, which is important in the early

In adults, current recommendations include yearly physician examinations and yearly mammography.

At , said... PT, have you actually had intimate medical care in the past decade or is where you are coming based on very long ago experiences? I have been catheterized probably 3 dozen times over the past 11 years by a number of female nurses (mostly NP's)for cystoscopies, bladder cancer treatments, and two surgeries. At the beginning of the process I also had an abdominable & testicular ultrasound by a female tech. I have been self conscious each and every time but my exposure is always kept

107. Cancer information and anxiety: applying the extended parallel process model. (Abstract)

Cancer information and anxiety: applying the extended parallel process model. There is concern that public education about testicular cancer (TC) may cause unnecessary anxiety. Psychological theory suggests that if threat (eg, TC) information is accompanied with threat control strategies (eg, testicular self-examination; TSE) anxiety is less likely. Male students (N=443) were randomized to either a TC or TC +TSE information group or a no information control group, and assessed at three time (...) points. Anxiety levels did not differ between the groups and exposure to TC+TSE resulted in greater perceived message benefit, increased intention to self-examine and lower message denigration. This suggests TC information is not anxiogenic, but inclusion of TSE information may improve acceptance of disease awareness information.

Perhaps when the nephrology community acknowledges the true relationships between IDWG, high ultrafiltration rates, sodium modeling and myocardial ischemia/cardiac stunning/ cardiac hybernation, perhaps then, the iatrogenic nature of IDWG will strike a chord of introspective self examination of the prohibition of the Hippocratic Oath, first do no harm. said...

Interestingly, the melanoma was found by my request for a dermatology screen as part of my transplant evaluation. Using the term "noncompliance" underlies the prevalent imbalance in the doctor-patient relationships in dialysis units. It ignores the physiology of myocardial ischemia inducing permanent damage to the heart of dialysis patients from excessive ultrafiltration rates even

of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome patients includes colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, and video capsule endoscopy beginning at age 8, with the timing of subsequent surveillance determined by the findings. Surveillance for breast, ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancer should include breast self-examination starting at age 18 and then starting at age 25 should include annual pelvic examination, pelvic or transvaginal ultrasound, Papanicolaou (Pap) test, and breast MRI and/or mammogram. In addition, surveillance (...) for pancreatic cancer should begin at age 30 and include magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) or endoscopic ultrasonography. Surveillance of the testes (for Sertoli cell tumor) by testicular examination should be done annually from birth to adolescence; ultrasonography should be done if abnormalities are palpated or if feminization occurs. Although Peutz-Jeghers syndrome patients are at increased risk of lung cancer, no specific screening is recommended but should be considered if patients

114. Floating Balls Appearance in Testicular Cystic Teratoma. (Abstract)

Floating Balls Appearance in Testicular Cystic Teratoma. Fourteen cases of a "floating balls" appearance on imaging studies in a mature ovarian cystic teratoma have been reported in published studies since 1991. Past investigators could not provide an explanation for the true mechanism of the formation of the balls. However, the floating balls occurred in rather large cysts. Because of self-examination, patients with testicular teratoma are usually referred to the hospital when the tumor (...) is of a smaller size than that seen in patients with ovarian teratoma. We report the first case of a floating balls appearance in a testicular teratoma.
